Some days you just need a little extra cuteness.
Miss Fiona woke me at 5 this morning in a bit of a funk. She’s not feeling well and is being rather hard to please.
I finally went searching on you-tube for cute animal videos, since those can brighten just about any day.
This one was a hit with both of us. It was also very good for playing “learn that animal name.” 🙂
I’ll be back soon with some proper posts.
The New York Zoos and Aquarium and the Wildlife Conservation Society have created a fabulously fun site!
Build Your Wild Self lets kids build themselves with all sorts of animal parts, while learning about animals along the way.
Customize your creation with your own hair, eyes and features, and then add elephant ears, monarch wings and so on, or create random funny characters. You can even create your friends and family as wacky animals!
Have you seen this adorable video of a mama moose and her twins playing in a family’s sprinkler? What fun! 🙂
"It is an important and popular fact that things are not always what they seem. For instance, on the planet Earth, man had always assumed that he was more intelligent than dolphins because he had achieved so much – the wheel, New York, wars and so on – whilst all the dolphins had ever done was muck about in the water having a good time. But conversely, the dolphins had always believed that they were far more intelligent than man – for precisely the same reasons."
— Douglas Adams
We passed this sweet group of sheep friends on our way out of town the other day. They were huddled so close together they were a solid sheep mass! It was a sunny, warm day so we weren’t sure why they were so close, but at the end of the day they were just as close in another part of their pasture.
Stick together, folks. It can be a big, baaad world out there. 😉
…Try to catch a toad!
Here’s some tips here and here.
Don’t keep him! Thank him and let him go.
Better yet, make a toad house in your back yard and see if they’ll come to you!
Here’s tons more information on the perfect toad home.
Or go all out and make a toad village, like these folks!
